Most viewed questions

What are the membership and transaction fee for?

Membership and transaction fees are used to cover the inherent costs of training, support and technological services to all the organizers from around the world, to enable them to organize their own event, graciously offered by Diner en Blanc International. These services allow us to preserve the values conveyed by the concept, to sustain the corporate standards by regrouping them within a single network and, to develop these technical tools. The membership offers members a number of online services that will be multiplied in the coming years. Diner en Blanc International is working in updating its platforms - release planned for 2016 - in order for all participants of a Dîner en Blanc event to become members. In addition, this annual fee will allow members to register for as many Dîner en Blanc events in the world as they wish.

Is it an illegal activity?

Le Dîner en Blanc - Paris is held on the most prestigious sites of the city, without authorization. The first editions were not easy to put in place. Today, the French authorities know the organization and know that it’s always well controlled. Moreover, the event’s photogenic quality adds to the city’s image of a modern and stylish city, open to the world. To ensure the safety of our International DEB guests, we require that the local hosts have the proper authorization, permits and insurances before proceeding with their event.

How many Dîner en Blanc events are there in the world?

There are close to 60 events scheduled, or in the process of being approved for 2015! Most take place in North America and Europe with a total of one hundred thousand members participating each year. The largest and most internationally recognized Dîner en Blanc, is the original event in Paris. Instigated over 27 years ago by François Pasquier and his close friends, it attracts today almost 15,000 people yearly. The second largest event is based in Montreal, Canada with 5,500 guests.

I have seen that many of your events worldwide are associated with certain brands, is there a possibility for sponsorship opportunities?

Dîner en Blanc International prides itself on being associated with some of the most exciting and elegant brands worldwide, however this event is first and foremost a dinner amongst friends and is not intended to be an event overly saturated with brand and marketing opportunities.

Is the Dîner en Blanc really free?

Le Dîner en Blanc is first and foremost a gathering of friends. It is a non-commercial, organisation. The fee required of guests goes to cover the costs inherent to the organisation, i.e. location and bus rental, electricity, insurance, sound system, lighting, security, photographic and video services, and other surprises unique to each event.

What must guests bring?

A table, two (white) chairs, a picnic basket comprised of quality menu items and china dinner service. They must wear white and be dressed elegantly. Originality is encouraged as long as it stays stylish and denotes taste.

What is the size of the table guests need to bring?

The table does not have to be white as it will be covered with a white tablecloth. But it has to be square, foldable, and easy to carry. The size must be between 28 and 32 inches (71 and 81 cm).

How can we participate?

In Paris, one must know a member of the organisation to receive an invitation. In other words, it’s a friendly co-optation system. For other cities, however, guests can sign up on the official Dîner en Blanc web site in hopes of getting a place.
